143% daily value for b6 in 8oz of salmon. 142% daily value for b6 in 6oz of liver. Decent amounts in meat, throw in a few lbs of plants and you should be good.

Organic greens (spinach, kale, salad greens, etc.), liver, grassfed butter, bone broth, meat, wild caught fish - especially salmon. Good quality extra virgin olive oil, red palm oil. What's not paleo: spam!

The veg needs to be completely submerged. Anything sticking out will rot, not ferment. Your set-up needs to breath. No air-tight containers while it is fermenting. Once you transfer it to the fridge, air-tight containers are fine. My kitchen... (more)

Protein raises insulin, so if you are already eating paleo and you reduce or cut out meat for a bit, in theory it can help weight loss. To be honest, I don't really see much of a difference between intermittent fasting and periods where one just... (more)

I'm looking for some good digestion super-boosting fermented foods at whole foods. What's at the top of your list? I've been frequenting the Bubbie's Pickles and Sauerkraut and KimChi.

Bubbies is great, but it is not organic. The Rejuvenative Foods brand is best for health, but not so much for taste. Experiment, try other brands. Variety is good when it comes to fermented foods.
